I am particularly pleased to see so many examples of companies reaching out to their communities and engaging with employees – after all, medtech is really about people rather than technology.

A job for life

Careers in medtech offer a rewarding way to help transform and save lives every day

These days, employees expect more from their career than just an occupation or a monthly salary. Today’s job hunters are looking for meaning; they want to work in companies and industries that share their values and make a difference in people’s lives.

The medical technology sector offers opportunities to do just that: to play a part in a collective effort to alleviate pain, restore health and extend life. Medtronic France found a powerful way to communicate this to the wider public through their Un jour, un métier (One day, one job) campaign.

The initiative showcased a range of medtech careers and featured testimonials from a diverse group of employees working in quality control, reimbursement, clinical affairs, digital communications and beyond. The goal was to encourage students to consider medtech as they begin to think seriously about their career path.

Pierre-Antoine, a clinical specialist, spoke of how his job put him ‘at the heart of innovations’ and gave him an opportunity to ensure the safety and performance of tomorrow’s medical devices. Estelle, a digital product specialist, illustrated how social media can have a real impact on the lives of people living with chronic conditions: ‘To assist patients and simplify their day-to-day lives through the use of social networks is my objective,’ she explained. 

Using LinkedIn, Twitter and a dedicated page on the Medtronic France website, the campaign helped to personify the industry and show what drives people working in the sector. It attracted more than 31,000 views on social networks, strong engagement on LinkedIn, and a significant number of visits to the website. These results demonstrate an increasing interest in medtech sector and hopefully the campaign will have inspired young people to choose a career in medical technology.
